The pivotal acquisition of MuleSoft in 2018 marked a significant achievement for Salesforce, introducing a seamless approach to connecting with any system through an extensive array of pre-built connectors. The Anypoint platform, part of MuleSoft, offers a centralized cloud-based system for managing API connections, executing integrations, and overseeing monitoring and reporting.

MuleSoft with its Anypoint platform, is equipped with a broad library of connectors that facilitate integration with Mainframes, ERP systems, and SaaS applications through well-established and templated solutions. Salesforce has recently unveiled Salesforce MuleSoft Composer, a user-friendly and lightweight version designed for administrators that seamlessly integrates within Salesforce.

Salesforce Mulesoft Explained

MuleSoft provides a diverse set of tools to build automations and integrations tailored to various enterprise use cases. Its API-led connectivity approach includes three categories of APIs:

  • System APIs: Unlock data from core systems of record within an organization, such as ERP, customer and billing systems, and proprietary databases.
  • Process APIs: Define communication between different systems, allowing the orchestration of multiple System APIs to accomplish a specific business process.
  • Experience APIs: Expose business capabilities to application developers in a consumable, consistent way, promoting reuse and agility.

MuleSoft’s integration platform enables businesses to connect applications, data, and devices, while Salesforce, a cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) platform, focuses on enhancing customer relationships.

In the integration process, MuleSoft fetches data from a third-party system, transforms x, y, z data elements, converts the data to JSON, and inserts/upserts it into Salesforce objects. Salesforce then automates further data processing on the saved data, showcasing the synergy between the two platforms in streamlining and optimizing data workflows.

Mulesoft will likely be a part of your Salesforce implementation if you are using any legacy or third-party products. Contact Tectonic today to explore Mulesoft for your Salesforce org.
